Dr Rocio Pérez-Tattam, CEPSAM Associate Director & Research Seminar Series; Liaison with UK Universities and other Research Centres

s.perez-tattam@swansea.ac.uk

Research interests: My research interests and expertise lie in the general areas of applied linguistics, Romance linguistics, and more specifically in the areas of second language acquisition, bilingualism and psycholinguistics. I am interested in linguistic and environmental factors (e.g. socio-economic status, context of exposure to the two languages, etc.) and their effect on the acquisition of grammatical phenomena in English and Spanish (e.g. compound nouns, tense and aspect, grammatical gender). I am also interested in the application of this type of research to the teaching of foreign languages and translation.
